Ukraine is very sensitive to such things.

Ukraine Debuts LGBTQ ‘Unicorn’ Troops (31 May)

Ukraine’s gay, lesbian, and transgender military volunteers are adding a unicorn patch to their uniforms, right under the national flag. The patch is meant as a rebuke to Russian rhetoric about “de-Nazification” and Russian rhetoric about the absence of homosexuals in the military forces of former Soviet territories.

Germany’s Deutsche Welle (DW) reported last summer that Ukrainian soldiers began coming out in greater numbers in 2018, including those deployed to fight Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine. Even then, gay Ukrainian troops thought identifying themselves could help counter Russian propaganda about fascists running Kyiv.

The Wagner group guys will be terrified.

These guys had never heard of the Third Reich?

Splat! It is only the 1st of June but it’s bloody freezing in most of the south east of Australia. Blankets of snow in the highlands. Electricity and gas hikes announced affecting all. Labor Government committed to taking out our coal. Currently brown coal producing 56% and gas 16% of energy in Victoria. No solar power, that’s none, zero, zilch, being generated and wind only at 16% at 5pm. I reckon Chris Bowen, Labors recent appointment as Energy and Climate Minister might feel a bit like that jogger when he realizes he has been given the job of closing our coal mines. Idealism will hit eventually reality and there will be many casualties.

The fascists of today are not what they used to be.

Do they put “GAYSTAPO” on this new patch?

The Alphabet Soup People only have 6/7ths of a Rainbow as a Rainbow has 7 colours. The 7th colour is being discriminated against and is taking its complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission. Also in Breaking News the Laws of Physics are suing the Alphabet Soup People for discriminating against the 7th colour. This is serious stuff people and all colours are united in this fight for Justice…………………..As a Spokesperson for the colours stated. “The Alphabet Soup People should not be allowed to call their ‘Rainbow’ a Rainbow as it isn’t a Rainbow”……………………

Correct John – if you blend the colours you get a sort of muddy poo brown blend.

I’m not sure genetically intersex people necessarily want to be identified as “queer”.

Anyway,

I support:

You reminded me, Dot, of this great line from Krusty the Clown: “I heartily endorse this event or product.”

Will the US embassy in Riyadh have the rainbow flag up?
Will all the European companies that embrace rainbow flag in western democracies do the same in the middle east?

Hey, where’s poor little shrinking Violet?

  1. Headline of the day: The Matildas and Arsenal weapon tasked with filling Kerr-sized hole Fnarrr.

  2. And puts lie to the media’s claim that he held a firearms licence “for recreational purposes”.

  3. The word doing the rounds (as yet unsubstantiated) is a total ban on “recreational” firearm use. Can see a lot…

  4. Outstanding. Just outstanding commentary on the current semitic sentiment in this country. The back end of a Gray Connolly piece…
